Title: Force as a vectorAim: To investigate force vectors and the component nature of forcesTheory: The net force must be zero for an object to be in equilibrium, and so the sum of all force vectors must be zero. If the sum of the force vector is zero, then the components in two perpendicular directions must also be combined to be zero. So, the vector component will be equal and opposite.Safety: 1.Wear shoes that cover the entire foot.2.Wear a safety glasses to protect eyes from any injuries. 3.Long hair should be tied back to minimize contamination of experiments.Apparatus: 1.Pasco force table2.Cotton thread3.Mass holder4.Slotted Masses5.Plastic ring 6.Smooth Pulley7.Graph paper, ruler and protractorProcedure:
Weight= mass(kg) x 9.81Set up the Pasco force table as shown in the picture below. Position one of the cotton thread at the angle 0° and 25g was hung on the mass holder. Masses were added to the other mass holders and adjust the position till the forces were in
